Parents of Gifted Children: Are We Aware of Their Needs?
In a survey of 247 parents of gifted students in a pull-out program designed for academically gifted students in grades four through six in Midland, Texas, parents were asked how they participated in the program and how they viewed the importance of being involved in various aspects of their child's special education. Among the results, the survey found that almost half of the parents were meeting and exchanging ideas with parents of other gifted children, while the other half were not; that a third of parents reported that they were not meeting with other parents but considered it important; and that one out of every seven parents was not experiencing what they preferred in terms of communication between themselves and the school.
